BlackBerry Storm takes on the Apple iPhone 3G

3 December 2008 — 7:00 PM

The launch of the new BlackBerry storm has prompted one website to compare the phone to its fiercest competitor - the Apple iPhone 3G.

With the new handsets available exclusively on the latest contracts from Vodafone and O2 respectively, many buyers may be looking to sell used phones - and Trusted Reviews has offered advice on which of the two is worth the money.

In an article for the electronics website, Riyad Emeran states the BlackBerry Storm is a more comfortable model to hold, but adds it is also heavier than its Apple counterpart.

He adds that other problems such as a disappointing battery life and a lack of Wi-Fi limit the Storm - but concludes there are still a number of good reasons to consider the handset.

"Despite these problems, the Storm is still the closest real competitor to Apple's iPhone seen to date," he states.

The BlackBerry Storm is Research In Motion's first entry into the touchscreen mobile market and is seen by many as one of the iPhone's closest rivals.
